Subject: The 2nd night...
The sound was off the first night and it starts off tonight too. Jack straw was nice, it had energy but Jerry's picking was 'muffled' as in he hits the notes but they aren't too clean.

Franklin seems a little better, sound wise. By the middle of the song, everything is a go and Jerry jams it out.

Althea again, is slow, the previous night's version is a little better, in my opinion.

The Black Peter is nice...

I don't know what version you other fans are listening too, but this is f-ing top notch. The boys put on a SICK show and the sound of this SBD is crispy clear, typical 1980 Grateful Dead. This "Franklin's Tower" is special. Jerry is just slipping all over the fret board with ease and grace. Beautiful stuff here. Do NOT pass this up.

FYI - You can download a pretty damn good copy of this show at www.gdlive.net. Peace out brothers and sisters.

Subject: Great Show, underrated
This show does not deserve a 3 and a half star avge rating. It is a very good soundboard with no flaws that I could detect and a spirited performance by the boys. Please do not pass this one up.

Subject: Good Show
The SBD sounds good, not the greatest. It's worth a listen.

This run of shows from Alaska was among the first of the tapes that I ever acquired as a newbie back in the day. It sounded terrible, but I listened intently anyway.
This is a nice SBD, very clean vocals, altho certain things like hi-hat and bassdrum are a tad overpowering at times. The song selection is solid, Sailor>Saint is superb as always. This performance comes recommended, at least for a stream.
